Our research on the changing trend in bar stools uncovered a fascinating history of how they evolved over the years.

History of Kitchen Bar Stools

Back in the day, you would only see bar stools in bars and pubs but they have come a long way since then. With time bar stools found a place in our homes, specifically our kitchens. Before kitchen stools debuted in contemporary themed homes, they made their debut as a folding stool with a skin or fabric seat and a framed stool with wood.

The Romans, Greeks, and even the Vikings used folding and framed stools. As for the modern version of the stool, it came in the early 17th century. We’ll take you through the history of kitchen bar stools to further your understanding.

The Humble Beginnings of Kitchen Stools

Chairs represented status in olden times. The more extravagant and embellished the chair, the higher the social standing. A basic bar stool served as a seating option for people declared worthy to sit at a table but not deserving of an ornate chair.

While the bar stool mostly indicated social status, every culture perceived it a little differently. For instance, helpers and children sat on kitchen bar stools during the Roman era whereas royals sat on bar stools in Africa with people much lower than them sitting on the floor.

When did it all change?

The 1800s saw a shift in the perception of using chairs to depict a person’s status in society. The start of the Industrial Revolution increased the production of chairs and with it, people’s access to them. Commonly, bars, pubs, and restaurants kept bar stools made of wood and without a backrest because of their ability to last several years.

In fact, bar stools became all the rage in the 1950s and 1960s with almost every bar and restaurant owner keeping them in their establishment.

But the advancement of technology had other plans for bar stools.

As technology advanced, so did the size, style, and shape of the bar stool. After a while, bar stools were no longer just a seating option for bars and restaurants, but homeowners became enamoured by them. Overnight, bar stools dominated homes, becoming a staple in the kitchen.

The modern-day kitchen bar stools come in various styles and colours such as our beautiful blue bar stools. You can also choose a bar stool based on its material. Although some sellers use wood, which is a common material used to create kitchen stools, the most popular option remains a chrome finished metal stool with either velvet or faux leather seats.
